From the Society for the Teaching of Psychology website:
A reference tool for students taking statistics or research methods, one page is a matrix that allows students to determine how scales of measurement determine what descriptive techniques are appropriate. The other page is a set of tree diagrams that allows students to determine how scales of measurement and, where applicable, relevant design features determine what inferential techniques are appropriate.
